Living in a remote area of Napa Valley, I get to experience a diversity of wild animals every day. I have had the pleasure of daily visits from ravens, turkeys, foxes, squirrels, and occasionally, bobcats, coyotes, and a mountain lion. There are also a beautiful assortment of birds sharing our environment. Besides the connection I feel to the wild life around me, I have pets, including three beautiful donkeys. Donkeys have such delightful personalities, that I just had to capture their essence on the canvas.
